So the other day we went to Ikea after work with some friends to have a “look” only, but then we ended up buying this cute little white night table that just fits perfect with our bed and the light colours of the room. The bedroom is now more complete, but we are still thinking of buying another night table (if we have space) and also the bigger glasstable to have under the TV on the wall. We just have some measuring to do 🙂
I really love Ikea and I feel just like home when I walk around in the store. I get crazy many ideas in there and I think they are really the best on combining all their products, or like how to combine everything smart.
Since I live abroad my favourite part of IKEA is actually the food part and not the furnitures 🙂 After a stop in the hotdog canteen we bought some nice Swedish cakes and candy with us home; the famous cinnamonrolls, chocolateballs, also bought meatballs (perfect to have in the freezer when you don’t know what to cook) and one of my absolute favourites; almond cake! It’s also perfect to have in the freezer and especially if you have visits:)
Sunday was such a nice afternoon spent in Castelldefels at the beach. My second day at the beach so far this year and even with sunfactor 30 I got a bit sunburned so I had to “cover” it with make-up 🙂 We had lunch with some friends in a beachbar and just relaxed and talked, had icecream and got tanned, really nice day 🙂
My salad was so good; goatcheese with honeyoil and it was served with blueberries and raspberries, so yummie and fresh. It gave me an idea to start make salads with berries, (not just strawberries) but blueberries really fit good with honey and salad, and not to mention raspberries and goatcheese. The others had paella which looked amazing and my boyfriend had fried squids which was supertasty with lemon..Castelldefels beach is so beautiful and so calm compared to Barcelona, I think maybe due to there is much more “space” as the sand is “wider” and with the mountain in the background it just looks very exotic.
Yesterday was a supernice day, not to talk about the weather 🙂 I had a big dose of D-vitamin at the beach which was necessary after the past week we had with the most cold-crazy weather. My friend thought there was a little “too much” people at the beach, well, but it truly was, and it’s gonna be even more crowded in a month when the real season starts. We spent some hours in the sand talking and then we went to have some nice food at the organic wok market just beside the beach. I love their wok with rice noodles, chicken and green curry with coconutmilk, spicy and supertasty.
In the evening me and my boyfriend went to Feria de Abril, a big event in Forum that they celebrate once a year with a lot of flamenco dancing, lots of food and activities. We just walked around eating some churros listening to the nice flamenco music 🙂
I love this shirt. It feels like flowers are coming back and I love all flowery tops and dresses. I actually bought it without trying it on first, but sometimes when I see something it’s like I can see how it fits. It was perfect to wear today at the beach with white jeans, very summerish 🙂
My boyfriends cousin has a supercute fashion blog that I follow and she always knows what to wear 🙂 If you wanna get some fashion inspiration check it out as there is very cute summeroutfits 🙂
The other evening my boyfriend cooked the most amazing dinner at home, cuttlefish! It felt just like we were back in Tenerife for a second eating cuttlefish at that lovely restaurant in Garachico…We bought it fresh and fried it in the pan with oliveoil for a few minutes and served it with potatoes and garlic/parsley/oil sauce, and had some bread on the side, (perfect to dip in the sauce)! It’s really nice to try new things at home and this was definitely my favourite so far 🙂
I had a sushi craving (not surprisingly) last week and went with my sister &Co to have dinner in Miss Sushi, the pink sushi place. Everything really is pink inside, big pink sofas and chairs, almost a little too much of pink but anyway the sushi is really amazing! We had a nice last evening together, as a week of visit always goes too fast.
Today it’s Sant Jordi here in Catalunya, a big celebration day where girls get roses and guys gets a book. My boyfriend went to buy baguette for breakfast and came back with a beautiful red rose, so sweet! I don’t know the exact story about this day but it’s a saint and a story about a dragon and a princess, and people celebrate it everywhere on the streets.
I thought these little sant jordi pastries was so cute, they are called “cronut” which is a mix of a donut and a croissant 🙂
Today we spent some hours at the beach in a beachbar having a soda and a pizza just taking some sun and relaxing with my sister. It was really crowded and the beach were full of people playing volleyball or just taking sun in bikini already. We ended the evening with some shopping as all stores were open due to this day 🙂
